I met a friend and former co-worker there with my wife and got there at 7. We closed the place by talking. My Wife and friend ordered some 'ritas and both commented how strong they were. The friend ordered a second one and it was a little weaker but his third was so strong he couldn't finish it. It was... More

Tucked away off the Common is this little find. We found it full of locals, good sign! And it was worth the trip in- great margaritas, outstanding wings, and perfect fajitas. The guacamole was fesh and delicious, so were the chips! Price was less than everything around. Go and enjoy!

Stopped by at 4:00 pm on a Sunday afternoon after seeing a show at Majestic Theater. No wait at this hour, plenty of seating available up near front windows or down in dimmer main part of the restaurant. Service was quick and adequate, but not overly friendly and no followup. But the draft beers and shrimp fajitas for two were... More

Well the best part was the food n drinks. But i was inches away from the other table which made my conversation limited. Than the server comes over and says 'hey fellas' to me and my boyfriend. Witu no real introduction and did not check back even ONCE to ask if our food was good. The worst part which bothered... More

I had steak fajitas for $9 and my wife had a chicken burrito for $8. The food was very good. The surroundings were pretty cool. Prices were very fair but they do charge you extra for everything from cheese to salsa to sour cream. Close to park street station and downtown crossing. Our waitress wasn't that busy but seemed flustered.... More

Went here with my boyfriend. I love margaritas, and they have quite a selection, very delicious, but best of all, reasonably priced! The food was good, nothing spectacular, but well worth the price! I will definitely be returning.

I recently went to Fajitas and Ritas with a group of 7 people for a birthday. We had a very hard time making a reservation the day of the dinner with the waitstaff, who told us they didn't take reservations and we couldn't talk to a manager about it. We finally did get a manager on the phone who did... More

This was a unique combination between bar and restaurant: a tequila bar with great fajitas and margaritas, as the name would suggest. After a late flight landing in Boston, my boyfriend and I were famished and walked from our hotel in the Theatre district to hit up F&R just off Boston Common. We shared a large portion of steak and... More

Was back in Boston for a visit after a 12 year absence and decided to see if that Tex-Mex place was still there. To my delight it was. I brought the family in and we had a delicious meal. My kids are aged 3, 6,and 9 and you can tell that the friendly staff are used to children by the... More

Back in Boston again, and always look forward to a meal at Fajitas & 'Ritas. On a Thursday night, our 20 minute wait wasn't so bad, and we were lucky to find a seat at the bar to wait. Fajitas never disappoint and the straight up 'ritas are great. The only downfall is the fact that my coat continued to... More
